Baltimore Hebrew Institute

The Baltimore Hebrew Institute (formerly Baltimore Hebrew University) at Towson University is committed to supporting the education of Jewish studies scholars, educators and communal professionals who excel in their chosen fields. 

We offer generous scholarships and work with each student to custom tailor a program that meets their goals. In addition, Baltimore Hebrew Institute (BHI) offers engaging non-degree courses and lectures that provide opportunities for adults to deepen their understanding of Jewish and Israeli culture, history, education and community.

Three Main Focus Areas of BHI

The Baltimore Hebrew Institute has three main areas of focus:

ADVANCED DEGREES

We provide outstanding opportunities in advanced studies and degrees in Leadership in Jewish Education and Communal Service and Jewish Studies in a vibrant, cohesive community.

COMMUNITY ENRICHMENT

At BHI we provide community enrichment in ways that engage and welcome all who are interested.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

BHI also engages adult learners with an array of continuing education course offerings, special programs and community lectures in Judaic studies.

At TU, I am surrounded by fellow students and professors who have a passion for Jewish education. ”
